Chris Bosh's role still not certain
Erik Spoelstra said Wednesday it's more important that Bosh be put in positions to be aggressive than whether he's on the court when the game starts. And Bosh is simply amused by all the interest his status is getting.
"I didn't know it was such a big deal, the starting thing. I just thought people were happy to see me out there," Bosh joked.
Bosh had started every game he played in through the regular season and the playoffs until suffering an abdominal injury during the Eastern Conference semifinals. He has come off the bench in his four games since that nine-game absence.
Bosh played 34 minutes in Tuesday's 105-94 loss, collecting 10 points and five rebounds.
"I'm a glass is half-full kind of guy," Bosh said. "I always look at whatever position I'm, I'm like, 'This is the best position to be in right now.' It doesn't matter to me."
